Blue Horizon Rockaway Beach
Once featured in Architectural Digest, the house offers an open concept floor plan that is perfect for relaxing with family and friends. The main floor includes an efficient kitchen, a spacious living room with wood-burning stove, a dining table where every guest can enjoy gorgeous views, and a deck ideal for alfresco dining.
Blue Horizon comfortably sleeps up to six guests. The master bedroom on the top floor has a king-sized bed with en suite bathroom, deck, and cable-equipped TV. One bedroom on the lower level has a queen bed as well as a TV and DVD/VCR player, while the other has five bunks and a wall of books, toys, puzzles, and games. A bathroom with shower is also located on the lower level.
Rockaway Beach is known for its seven-mile soft sand beach and funky shops and restaurants. You can kayak on Lake Lytle or hike nearby Neahkahnie Mountain. You may also decide to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Cape Meares Lighthouse, Three Graces Tide Pool, Nehalem Bay, and the bohemian town of Manzanita—all just a quick car ride away. A short drive further takes you to Cannon Beach, where you will find the famous Haystack Rock, many beautiful art galleries, stylish shops, and gourmet restaurants. By choosing to stay in Rockaway Beach, you’re central to so much!
The two decks at Blue Horizon are the highlight of everyone’s stay. You can BBQ, sunbathe, read your new favorite book, or just visit with old friends or family. This property’s spectacular views are a wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of the Oregon Coast.
PLEASE NOTE: This home has an open concept floor plan - there is not a door on the stairs which lead to the upper floor master suite nor is there a door on the room with the bunk beds on the bottom floor (though the room is situated privately).

Check in and coming and going is so easy with the key pad – such a good idea. The place itself is well equipped - we didn't cook but there were well-stocked cupboards and drawers. Water pressure was great, clean bathrooms, well maintained flooring etc – good idea on the “no shoes” policy.
The main living area is good; everything you need. The bed upstairs is the most comfortable bed in the world and the queen downstairs is good too. Some of the twins on the bunkbeds are old and they feel it - kids might not notice, but just for cleanliness etc they should probably be replaced.
Only disappointments - and it was a big deal when temps hit 95 - were the lack of aircon and only one screened door or window. By 4pm, the property was sweltering and it made the last night really uncomfortable. I know it's the PNW but the owners should invest in portable AC units on the main and top levels. And there needs to be more screens because bugs can, will and did get in because we had to try to cool it down somehow. The basement stays cool but the queen bed was taken and the bunks aren’t great for adults.
I would stay again in the summer if they got AC units, and definitely in the winter as it is – I’d like to try that wood stove out!
My suggestion is to have larger more comfortable living room chairs and to replace the King Bed. It was saggy and we rolled to the middle of the bed each night.
Manager Response: It is our pleasure to host repeat guests. The master bedroom king mattress was purchased two years ago. In investigating your report, we discovered that the center support under the mattress had broken and was causing it to sag. That has been remedied and a restful sleep is again available! We have passed along your suggestion for more comfortable living room chairs to the owner. Thank you again for staying with Starfish Vacation Rentals.
Manager Response: Thank you for the stunning review! It means so much to us to know that you had you enjoyed your time at Blue Horizon. Come back views are waiting for you!
Manager Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! It was great meeting all of you. Your crafting is a personal inspiration for me. Come back and visit again soon!
Manager Response: Thank you for your kind review about Blue Horizon. As a local manager of boutique accommodations, Starfish Vacation Rentals' team takes great pride in warmly welcoming guests to a clean, comfortable retreat at the coast. We'll pass along your compliments to our housekeepers too! We are so happy to hear that you so enjoyed the home and look forward to your next visit.
Manager Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Blue Horizon. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the incredible views from this home and it's three balconies! Our electronic lock was installed to provide easy arrival and access for our guests - we're glad you found it to be convenient too. We hope to welcome you again whenever your travels bring you to the Oregon Coast.
Manager Response: Thank you for your kind words. We agree that the views from Blue Horizon are incredible and must be seen in person to fully appreciate how unique and amazing they are. This home is best suited for 4-5 adults, 6 max. Our property care team works very hard to ensure high cleanliness standards and will be pleased to know their efforts were appreciated. We at Starfish Vacation Rentals look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Manager Response: We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the views from Blue Horizon as much as we do. They are breathtaking from the moment you open the front door! We can't wait to have you back.
Manager Response: We agree 100%. The views are indescribable - breathtaking and unique. Thanks for staying with us!
Note, the downstairs sink is rusty, if you decide to replace, that would be a plus.
Everything else was great.
Request - a recliner or couch (instead of love seat and small chairs.) We would stay much longer with these extras.
Manager Response: Thank you for your feedback - we always strive for our homes to be comfortable and furnished for all lengths of stay. The mattress in the master was brand new just a few months ago. It's a high end pillow top (on the soft side rather than firm and hard), so we are sorry to hear that you found it uncomfortable. We've had three of our staff members try it out and were unable to duplicate your description. The sink has been replaced. The furniture in the living room is optimized for the size of the room which makes this home ideal for a maximum of 4-5 adults.
So was "our" little house on the bluff. With only two of us there the house has more than adequate room. The upstairs master suite is fantastic. We woke each morning to a view of the waves and clouds. We were able to dine out or prepare meals in the house, we did both. It was a great stay. We only wish it could have been longer.
Manager Response: Glad you enjoyed this peaceful location as much as we do. Often the deer and other wildlife are your only neighbors up on the hill! The view is incredible - you can see a large swath of better than oceanfront!
Manager Response: So glad you enjoyed the home and the amazing views. Thanks for being our 2nd time guests! I am sorry though that the stairs gave you problems at Blue Horizon. We provide a floor plan on the website which indicates the layout of the home. We hope to have you back again next year.
Manager Response: We're glad you enjoyed the location and view! Our standard is to leave a fresh box of our natural bar soap in each tub/shower and an extra bar in the drawer in each bathroom too so you never run out. We supply 8 sets of towels at this double-check the count to be sure they're all there.
The fully equipped kitchen made cooking meals there a breeze.
The master suite was unbelievable! The downstairs area was comfortable with plenty of space. The house was neat and tidy and clean.
The only difficulty we encountered was that we couldn't get the seemingly new BBQ to ignite. We ended up having to broil our steaks in the oven.
Manager Response: We are so glad to hear that you had a great vacation and family reunion while staying at the Blue Horizon. The views truly are exceptional and as you mention this is the perfect home for winter storm watching too! We look forward to having you as our guests again soon!
Manager Response: We are so sorry to hear that you did not find the beds comfortable. Since this time, the queen bed upstairs has been replaced by a new king size bed. We're so glad you enjoyed the incredible views and balconies.
Manager Response: We love that this home sits on the hill above Rockaway away from the crowds - truly a place to disconnect and unwind. Glad you thought so too! It is just under a mile down the hill to the beach - we think the 180 degree breath-taking view is worth it!
The master bedroom was very big and had the same great views. My sister and her husband visited from Hood River and they loved it. They usually rent a home in Cannon Beach but said thye might have to reconsider after seeing
how perfect this home was. Thank you for a great visit and we will be back
Manager Response: Aren't the views from Blue Horizon breathtaking? Glad you thought so too! We'd love to have you back anytime!
